  • Its part of the National Park Santa Rosa. Has its on access. Its nice, but nothing spectacular. Great for campaing, if your into that. Good luck!
  • Great location for a day trip or overnight camping. Awesome beach moderate waves and plenty of room to enjoy the sand and water. There are many picnic spots complete with BBQs and tables as well as banos and showers and sinks for washing up after your meals. Two trails offering both hillside and beach environments with moderate to easy level of effort.
